The Suzie A

From the dust jacket, "This is the story of a fishing boat and the people whose lives she touched. Launched as a Japanese immigrant’s dream in 1926, the Suzie A went on to become part of the lives and dreams of Canadians of Norwegian, Yugoslav and First Nations descent. It is an account in which the racism that has pervaded so much of the Canadian west coast plays an important and heart wrenching part. This is also an account of British Columbia’s commercial fishing industry that is carried out amidst some of the world’s most difficult and spectacular waterways. But especially it tells the sixty-year saga of Ritchie and the seine fishing boat he grew to cherish. Alan Haig-Brown worked several years on B.C. seine boats and coastal freighters and is currently a commercial fishing writer.
